A Time of Thanks 



This fall season you will see members of the Capital Campaign Steering Committee 
traveling the highways of the Southeast Conference. They are stopping by and 
worshipping with the churches who have already made their pledge and commitment to 
the Transforming Churches-Transforming Lives Campaign. Representing the 
Conference, they are making a short appreciation presentation and awarding each 
pledging church with a framed plaque. We have currently 12 churches who have 
made their pledge with several more promising a commitment by Thanksgiving. 
Thank you to Bob Watson, Ginnie Nixon, Barbara Everett and Tim Downs for helping 
me make these first round visits! 

Ginnie Nixon had the pleasure of awarding Deer Lodge Congreagational Church 
United Church of Christ a plaque of appreciation on October 1 7th. Deer Lodge was 




one of the very first congregations to make their pledge to the campaign. Here's what 
Ginnie had to say about her visit there 

On a lovely fall day, I had the pleasure of visiting our friends at Deer Lodge 
Congregational Church, UCC, a small church that has been serving this rural 
community on the Cumberland Plateau since it was a thriving coal-mining center. This 
multi-generational family church has already paid its pledge of $5,000 to the 
Transforming Churches; Transforming Lives Campaign. I was greeted warmly by 
Moderator Farrell Kennedy and Pastor Rose Hermanot who both expressed their 
support for the mission and ministry of the Southeast Conference and their 
appreciation of both the award and my visit. The warm welcome from all the 
congregation confirmed the message "Whoever you are, wherever you are on life's 
journey, you are welcome here" which was displayed on the traditional church sign in 
front of the building and printed in the Sunday bulletin.
